Performance Opportunities

At the end of each semester there is a Dance concert performed in the college’s beautiful theater. All students will be able to take part in the exciting, fearful but ultimately fun experience, of performing in front of a large audience.

Throughout the year, small groups of dancers have the opportunity to perform at COS, school activities, football and basketball games, competitions, with the Tulare County Symphony, and at many other venues.

  • Dance at COS features ballet, modern, lyrical, jazz, funk, rhythm, tap, and more.
  • Auditions for the COS Cheer and Stunt Team are in late spring.
  • All dance classes are one unit with credit towards Physical Education or Theater Arts.

Come experience the fun, the people, get the exercise, and get involved!
